Screenshots are useful for sharing events such as your high score in a game, a scene from a video, social media interactions, and even reporting problems.
Taking a screenshot on an iPhone is straightforward if you’re new to the device:
How To Take A Screenshot On iPhone 8
- On your iPhone 8, press the Side button (previously known as the Sleep/Wake or Power button).
- Press the Home button and the Power button at the same time.
- To indicate that a screenshot has been taken and stored to your device, your iPhone screen will blink once and a shutter sound will be played (if your iPhone is not on silent).
If you don’t press the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same moment, your iPhone will inadvertently launch Siri or lock your device. So make sure to press both of them at the same time.
